In Defense of a 5-Year-Old Smartphone (and common sense)
John C. Dvorak for PC Mag defends his decision to hang on to his 5-year-old, perfectly funcitonal phone, in the face of consumer sheep and the electronics marketing machine that herds them into buying new technology every 12-14 months. Using the auto industry as an analogy, he exposes how foolish this is - and how necessary the change in our mindsets.
Amen, John. Call me a luddite, but I'm still happily rockin the iPhone 4. What's sad is that common sense needs defending.
